BRITISH ICONS OF BRISTOL

4 Star Hotel

Bristol is a city straddling the River Avon and it boasts a prosperous maritime history. Its former city-centre port is now a cultural hub and the Harbourside is home to M Shed and the famous SS Great Britain which we explore in detail. Our short break takes in the social and industrial heritage of this vibrant city.

The four star standard Doubletree by Hilton Bristol North is a welcoming modern hotel on the outskirts of the city. It boasts excellent wellness facilities including an indoor pool, a cosy lounge area and comfortable well equipped rooms.

Itinerary

Friday We depart in the morning and travel to Bristol where we have time in the lovely Clifton area of the city. At the Clifton Visitor Centre we discover how Brunel started the iconic suspension bridge and never saw its fruition due to lack of funds. A guided tour of the amazing bridge follows. Later in the afternoon we make our way to our hotel.

Saturday Today we visit the ship that changed the world, the SS Great Britain, another Brunel masterpiece. We have a one hour tour with an expert guide where the magnificent Victorian ship is bought to life with sights, sounds and smells. Whilst here we enjoy a ‘crewmans’ lunch of soup and sandwiches. Our afternoon will be free to discover this great waterside city.

Sunday After breakfast we check out of our hotel and visit the new British Aerospace attraction where we step aboard the last Concorde and have a unique glimpse into the aerospace industry over the last 100 years.  After lunch we return to Cornwall.
